Quote du jour/May Sarton

Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.
May Sarton


  1. I just love this quote. I hope you don't mind if I use it on my own blog one day. Maybe once things start popping up in the garden! :)

  2. Of course I don't mind! I just finished listening to excerpts from May Sarton's works, and I heard many words of wisdom. I like your new candle picture!

  3. I had never heard of May Sarton before reading that quote. I am going to have to look for something by her at the library! Thanks for the comment on my candle photo. :)

  4. Aisling, I am currently immersing myself in May Sarton, here is an interview you may find helpful as in introduction to her:

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
